The Moody Church in Chicago is privileged to have been a laboratory for the first performances of many of Marianne’s recently published arrangements. She is a gifted church musician, with the right combination of classical training and improvisational fluidity. Her well-honed technique and tone carry through into her arrangements, making it easy for the performer to adapt to her stylings. Marianne’s chord selection is unique and sometimes surprising. Every piece is wonderful to hear and a joy to play, with a captivating idea and a worshipful focus. Churches that enjoy quality music will welcome any arrangement by Marianne Kim into their repertoire. It’s almost as good as having Marianne herself!
